California Coronavirus (COVID-19) Response

Governor Gavin Newsom’s Shelter in Place Executive Order 


Since the start of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, Colusa County has taken a proactive approach to prepare for and carefully monitor potential positive cases in our community.  

Actions we have taken include:

  • Maintaining regular contact and following the guidance from the CDC and the California Department of Public Health (CDPH);

  • Conducting planning meetings with our programs and community partners to allow for enhanced response coordination;

  • Working to ensure that our health care systems, first responders and schools have the guidance they need through phone consultations, and meetings;

  • Maintaining communication and outreach with federal, state and local partners, including the County Office of Emergency Services, local government officials, and other Regional entities;

  • Providing symptom monitoring for residents returning from travel who are considered low to moderate risk;

  • Distributing information and updates to health care professionals and educational settings

  • Ensuring providers have access to public health staff for consultation to quickly identify symptomatic patients and that they have the ability to test those patients if warranted

  • Reviewing and adapting the County’s current pandemic plans for COVID-19.
